Early College Folio

About This Journal

Published by the Early College Research Institute, Early College Folio is a digital, open access, academic journal hosted on Bard Digital Commons. The journal is peer-reviewed, and includes articles by faculty and staff at early colleges and other leaders within the movement.

Mission | Early College Folio seeks to regularly publish accurate, innovative, and insightful research about early college applications world-wide, focusing broadly on the theory, pedagogy, and contemporary applications of early college models, including early college high schools, early admission, early entrance, and residential early college.

Scope | The journal highlights experiences inside and outside the classroom and across academic programs, therefore interdisciplinary academic works steered by both qualitative and quantitative methodologies are welcome. Early College Folio editors invite not only manuscripts and data sets for consideration, but also non-text and experimental mixed media submissions that incorporate photographs, audio, video and more.

The editorial board's thorough peer-review process will yield a product that roots early college’s unique place in the higher education landscape. Researchers will have the opportunity to showcase their findings to a global audience free of restrictive paywalls or membership requirements.
